LCA (Life Cycle Assessment)

LCA is a scientific tool for the evaluation of environmental effects of products or services throughout the complete life cycle, literally: “from cradle to grave.” This involves the extraction of raw materials, refining, fabrication, transportation, use, recycling and disposal of the product, as well as the energy and ancillary materials supplies. An LCA provides you with a chance to see how the products you produce are affecting the environment. Using the LCA you will map out a few different strategies that provide you with a quality product that will not have damaging impacts on the environment.
